Asked if the price-tag was weighing on him, Morata replied: ‘I admit it’s a very big amount, but I have the personality to play quietly and go my way. I have had only two pre-season games, 15 competitive minutes and a missed penalty… and they’re already killing me, so I know what’s ahead.

‘It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer. And it’s something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day. I know twice as many people are paying attention to me.’
